A Frequently Asked Question From This eBook Excerpt:How do I figure the number of lines in my poem? Do I count the title and the spaces between stanzas? Do I also include a word count for my poem?
The standard method is to count only lines of text in a poem and to not include the title or the spaces between stanzas. Sometimes magazine guidelines state to include spaces between stanzas, but this doesn’t happen often. However, if magazine or contest guidelines mention it specifically, be sure to include spaces in your line count. You don’t need to provide a word count for your poem unless guidelines ask for it.
